The Voice coaches all had the same message for a contestant who delivered a masterful version of Sam Smith's haunting hit: Stay with me.
But Los Angeles resident Maiya Sykes, who closed out the second night of blind auditions Tuesday with the emotional song, could only choose one coach – although they all tried their best to woo the professional singer and Yale graduate, who has been struggling to find her footing in the music industry for well over a decade.
"What excites me the most is that when people have their own story, it's about amplifying who you are and you telling the world your story," newbie coach Pharrell Williams said in a heartfelt appeal. "Do I get a little bit of Aretha? Yes. Do I get a little bit of Gladys Knight? Yes. But I am so interested in who you personally are, and that's the story I want to amplify."

The Voice nemeses Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are both family men now. But while Levine just celebrated one big milestone, Shelton isn't quite ready for the next one.
In an appearance to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Levine – who married model Behati Prinsloo in July – reveals that he's just head over heels for the word wife.
"I abuse that word right now, a lot," says the Maroon 5 frontman, 35. "I'll say it for no reason. I'll say, 'Where is my wife?' And she'll be right there. Wife, wife, wife. I love that term. I even changed the number on my phone to 'Wife' when she calls."
